Treasure Box

The buttons from Miss Sock Kitteh came from this old sewing box:

My Mom found it in a thrift store a few days ago and bought it for me (for 5 €!!!). It turned out to be a veritable treasure box, filled with old thread, buttons, little hooks, bits of wool, needles, more buttons, cut-off bra straps, elastic, ribbons, and miles and miles of pinkish embroidery thread of the expensive kind. (Which I used for the lazy daisy on Miss Kitteh’s belly.)

Needless to say that I was thrilled when my Mom brought the box home. 🙂
